Drummond barge wrecked in Colombia

Monday, April 14, 2014

A barge carrying construction materials for U.S.-based Drummond, Colombia's second biggest coal miner, was shipwrecked at the company's port late last week.

Drummond only recently reopened the port in northern Colombia after the government had shut down operations until the miner completed an upgrade to meet new environmental legislation.

A Drummond spokesperson said the port was operating normally and the incident had no impact on coal shipments.
